crossovert (10910) - Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2011
UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 473ml can. The pour is a nice hazy amber with a foamy white head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Sure, not the prettiest brew but good enough that the Brewers shouldn’t be ashamed of it leaving the can. The smell is awesome when you pour it out, better than sniffing it form the can. It has a great deal of tropical mango and cane sugar. Very resiny. Kind of one-dimensional but in a way that I love. The flavor is really nice. It has a mellow front end with sugar and melon being the main flavors. There is a bit of pale graininess in the beginning that is that sweet biscuity type which is awesome. The finish is bitter with some nice pine. It is pretty balanced with sweetness all the way through and a nice bitterness at the end. It prob could have had a pinch more bitterness to make it absolutely perfect. Glad I got to try this, I am often let down by hype, but this one is delicious and worth tracking down.

Hazy bright yellow with little white head. Aroma is tomatoes, grass, sugar, pine cone, citrus. Taste is is very sour with fruity sweetness. Mouthfeel is very smooth, more of the same in the finish. Overall good.

SinH4 (2335) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2016 My 100th US brewery. Can from a trade with sneakychi, many thanks! Pours hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma is tomato, resinous, grassy hops. Taste is juicy, resinous, grassy, yeasty. Smooth mouthfeel, a bit of a booze punch in the back. Very good, but completely different from what I expected. It’s much more simple, but still a bit delicate. Extremely drinkable though.

Really fresh can, danke Stefan! Salty, dank, light vegetal - strong tomato vine! Cloudy yellow, white lace. Medium body, foamy. Herbal, tomato vine again, fermenting citrus peel, salt finish. Alright, interesting, a bit overyped, but very very drinkable.

jfb (5355) - Freising, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2016
(can, many thanks to sinh4!) hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of herbal hops, nettles and sweatsocks, with a light touch of cherry stones, some yeast slurry and honeymelon. flavour is mostly yeast and pale malts, quite resinous, with some more nettles, herbal hops and a medium-bitter finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

bwa5879 (879) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Very pale opaque orange pour with healthy frothy white head a half inch high. Delicious juicy citrus aroma, bit of tropical fruits like pineapple too, pollen and lavender as well. Carbonation is average, nothing to note of mouthfeel, finishes crisp. Strong malt backbone, some herbals, bit boozy, acidic strong citrus that's slightly bitter. Dynamite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a can. Hazy golden with a frothy offwhite head. Aromas of fruity hops, caramel, citrus, resin. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Medium sweet, heavily bitter. Delicious hoppy character into an exquisite finish. Extraordinary IPA,

1 pint can. A cloudy golden beer with a small white head. Aroma is of citrus, especially orange, floral hints, pine and hops. Taste is bitter with some carbonation. Medium bodied, smooth and astringent with floral and very bitter finish. Perfectly balanced hoppy beer.

JDBaker11058 (1790) - Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2016
appearance: cloudy yellow gold, with a finger of thick, creamy white head that persisted and shrunk only slightly; good lace rings around the glass. aroma: up front it’s citrus first (lemon, grapefruit, some blood orange), then floral, then tropical (pineapple, mango), and then resinous pine, over a hint of pie crust and pepper. taste: the hops meld almost completely into a distinct whole, with elements of pine, grass, herbal, tropical, floral, and citrus hops all coming together into an earthy, funky, fresh, bright mix; there’s some malty sweetness and notes of lemon curd underneath to provide some heft. finish: dry, slightly chewy, with the hops and sweetness and a hint of alcohol all coming together with enough carbonation to keep the thing from crushing you. notes: It’s surprisingly drinkable and balanced, and the alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel felt almost grainy, but in a good way. Did not expect this to live up to the hype, but no kidding it actually did. Can from Paul at work, who is my new best friend.

commonshawn (1005) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2016 Can in Burlington poured into pint glass with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. Hazy orange with white head and excellent lacing . Clean funky citrus nose. Amazing taste from the start. Incredibly smooth, then citrus, clean subtle spice. Citrus funk, then well masked alcohol and hop. Sweet more than bitter. Alcohol comes out as it warms. Exactly what a dipa should be. This actually lives up to the hype.
